The folks behind Hummer have unveiled the H2, their version of the SUV for 2003. The H2 includes a BOSE sound system, driver memory settings and OnStar navigation, and is better suited for the urban jungle than a real one. Another first for the H2 is that this is the first truck to come standard with 22-inch rims. Designed by Bazo, who are the first on the market to step up and match the H2's extra large dimensions, these rims will instantly fit your style.
How mind-blowing is this ride? At the New York auto show earlier this year, a clear fiberglass barrier kept people three feet away from the Z8, perhaps for fear gawkers would steam its windows as they panted. With a design combining equal parts European elegance and American muscle, the two-seat Z8 departs from every other auto in BMW's current fleet and makes a new markâ€”make that an exclamation pointâ€”in the world of stratosphere sports coupes.
Porsche, the world-renowned producer of superspeed sports cars, will soon produce an SUV, with the emphasis on sport. Advanced numbers already give evidence that the Porsche Cayenne will be off the hook. The 2003-4 Porsche Cayenne Turbo will have a twin-turbo charged, 4.5 liter V8, which is another break with tradition and will produce 450 horsepower and 620 pounds feet of torque. End result: The Turbo is forecasted to go 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, faster than both the BMW X5 and the Porsche Boxster. Cats in the know are predicting that the Cayenne will be a world-class performer on the street and in the forest.
The all-new Lincoln Aviator rolls your way, priced in the upper $30 to low $40K range. Closely modeled after Ford's Explorer but rivaling wheels like Lexus' RX300 or BMW's X5, the Aviator promises to be one of the plushest new rides of 2003. With electrically heated or cooled seats and butter-soft leather interior, the focus is on total luxuryâ€”and power. An all-aluminum, 4.6 liter v-8 engine with dual overhead cams and a towing capacity of 7,300 pounds adds up to a beastly ride.
